Our first camping weekend with our new WBCCI unit took place at Hagan-Stone Park, a 409-acre county park between Raleigh and Greensboro. We were in the Group Camp section (Section C), a wide open field with a pavillion and restrooms, electric and water hook-ups.
Section B is a 29-site area for regular camping — although the sites look pretty small. We saw a few that we’d fit into, but not many, and the area is really slanted, so bring your leveling blocks.
Section A is tent camping — beautiful, wooden sites (completely empty when we walked through on Saturday). We’ll definitely think about coming back and tent camping before it gets too cold.
The park has miles of trails …
The coolest thing that happened during the weekend was the Bluegrass mini-convention on the other half of the group camping section.
The group put up 4 canopies in the corner of the field, strung them up with lights and played at night — sometimes complete, accomplished bands played, and sometimes adorable groups of kids just learning the banjo. It was incredibly fun! I also learned about cloggin’ and jiggin’ which was completely unfamiliar to me– almost River Dance-ish, sometimes with taps on their shoes, men/women/children would appear from the audience carrying a board and start dancing. I loved it.
